Vegetable-stuffed Mushrooms

SERVES: 2

Ingredients:

2 large Portobello mushrooms

2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/2 onion, chopped in cubes

1 small courgette, chopped

1 tomato, chopped

1 clove garlic

1/4 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp thyme

1/4 tsp black pepper

50g (1.7oz) mozzarella cheese

Method:

Preheat the oven to 190º C (gas mark 5).

Cut off the stems of the Portobello mushrooms using a sharp knife. With a spoon, carefully scrape out the ribbing and create a bowl in the under-side of the mushrooms. Dice all innards and set aside.

In a non-stick frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add the onion until it starts to sweat (2-3 min). Add the courgette and reserved mushroom innards and cook until just soft (3-5 min).

Add the chopped tomatoes and spices. Sauté for an additional 3 minutes to combine the flavors. Remove from heat.

Place mushroom caps, upside-down on a greased, foil-lined baking sheet. Gently fill the caps with the warm veggie mixture.

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Top with a sprinkling of cheese and bake the mushrooms for another 10-12 mins until the cheese turn golden.
